I -Dentity

A human being is a part of the whole called by us "universe", a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. 
--Albert Einstein

2016

We are becoming aware that there is no time to waste and that this IS our one precious life which is worth living like our life depends on it now.
It does.

We can initiate conversations fulfilling our core goals and commitments. This is important - and it questions if our live's actions fulfill or wander away from what we value? Are we living on purpose? Please note, a meditation practice is only partially 'magic', you must intentionally work hard and focus on the actual practice regularly. Short of that effort it will be like any other lame or facetious effort! I mean it!

I got a serious traumatic brain injury (TBI) over two decades ago. Many millions worldwide share this condition. I've found peace and equanimity (and much else) through my mindfulness and meditation practice. In 2010 I realized that I've got something worth devoting my life to for the TBI community - teaching mindfulness to others suffering  similarly.
I call it "Gold Mind Meditation Project", started in 2010. The project is to bring present for sufferers of TBI the benefits of MINDFULNESS.
http://hadwalmer-goldmind.blogspot.com
One form this takes is classes I teach at Legacy Good Sam. Hospital in Portland, OR via BIRRDsong.org, a  local TBI support group
http://braininjuryconnectionsnw.org

I look forward and welcome any comments on how y'all think I could expand this to reach every member of the TBI (and other traumas) COMMUNITY. It grows by millions every year.

This is a long past page from the time of my auto accident, now case history.  Psychic Connie Newton is in Chicago and I’m in the Davis, CA hospital.

Connsuella Newton,  doing this reading,
        http://www.thedestinyoflight.com/index.html
Had Walmer Age 22   U.C. Davis Center For Brain Injury, patient in coma            
        after automobile accident on I-5 North, CA
HAROLD C.  WALMER, D.O.

My Observations:
I am progressing down the hall to a room on my left and I see a young man placed rather close to the window, he is on the side where the window is.  I see a head that is wrapped in bandages. His bed is elevated slightly just so that the head is up just a little bit.  I don’t see a lot of the elevation.  I see bandages on other parts of the body.  The body has a number of contusions on it. I see bruises contusions along the inferior maxillary bone above the right side of the jaw. Bruises are seen across the clavicle on the chest.  The right side of the body seems to have received more trauma than the other side. The bruises are seen more easily on the right side and the right arm.  The chest and the hip area on the right side show heavy red spots.  I don’t fee that the blood has turned back and blue at this time.
The right arm:
I see here that the wrist and the hand were shown to me to be turned back at an angle.  I feel some degree of muscular contraction here.  The hand muscles are pulled back.  I had a big question mark in my mind on this, because it could be that there is a break or a fracture here, or that there is some damage to the right hand muscle.  At any rate contraction should be stopped in it or it should be checked somewhere along the line.  I checked it three or four times and it still came back to that same kind of twisting look.
Personality:
To make sure that I’m in on the right person. He is cheerful, dark hair, average height about 5’-10” maybe an inch or two taller than his father.  His hair has a little curl in it.  I feel one section of his hair falls a little to the center of his forehead; it’s almost like a trait. I would say that the hair would fall easily there.  The most outstanding feature is that his eyes are very bright.  I get the feeling that his eyes are the key winning feature about his face.  He has a winning smile and the fire of life I get is in his eyes.  There have been some attempts to grow a moustache recently but I don’t get that he was satisfied with this.  I would indicate that he is easy going, has a very relaxed attitude.  There is not a great deal of intensity about him.  I would say his is easy going easy to know easy to like easy living.  The key word is easy for him and I would say that this is a person that I would feel comfortable with, a person that most people would feel comfortable with.
In talking to the consciousness of Had I see that he respond to me in a sleepy fashion and not in a very alert state at this time.  His nervous system and I’m doing this very quickly and briefly as possible.  I got right into pain centers that are being registered and I feel that they are being registered across the shoulders and running down both arms.  The pain also registers down the back to the 10th thoracic vertebrae.  The pain is felt from the bottom of the left heel of the left foot up the back and coming from the bottom of the left foot up the back to the anklebone.  Pain is also radiating in the back of the neck into the medulla oblongata.  There is some degree of pressure in the cervical bone area pressing also on the spinal cord.  Instead of the cord being suspended like it should be, I see it resting against the bones in the 1st 2nd and third cervical areas.
Now when I got to the area of concern I asked him to indicate where the most intense areas are and he indicated that there was a lot of heat in the head.  He feels pressure and indicates the right hemisphere of the brain.  He maintains and continues to reiterate that the temperature inside of him has to be decreased.  He keeps saying that the temperature is rising and emphasizes controlling this more than anything else.  I keep trying to get to other areas of the body and he kept indicating temperature and that he must be kept cool.  The lower part and center of the head is where he indicates intense swelling that would be in the parietal lobe, the temporal lobe and the occipital.  All this is behind the fissure of Rolando.  The swelling is more pronounced here than in the frontal lobe.  He indicates some pressure behind the left eyeball, but getting in there I feel that it’s more pressure from the swelling than any outstanding damage.  I’m aware of heat from the back of the neck to the center part of the head and a lot of heat is centered over the left hemisphere of the brain.  This is my sensation.  The right side of the face feels numb somewhat and I feel a swelling there.  I feel that there is some laceration inside the mouth and that there may be some molars loose on the right side. When I got down into the respiration I felt that it is deep.

The musculature:  I sense some repair work might be needed on the right shoulder with possible strain or separation at this point.  In looking over the musculature in his body he seems to have nice long muscles, not the bunched kind of muscles in his body.  They’re the kind of muscles that would be good for track and the kind of muscles that would be good for swimming, that kind of build.  Getting into the organs I don’t see a full expansion of the lungs even thought the respiration is deep I don’t get good full expansion of the lungs and this particularly on the right side.  I also am aware of a dark spot on the right lung in the area near the sternum between the 5th and 6th ribs.  This could be due to a blow received or it could be an indication of a bruise going deep at that time but it was shown to me on the level at that area, right in the lung section.  The heart I felt was normal in its’ function and I didn’t feel any drawing to stay in that particular area to examine here.  The liver and all organs in the abdominal region; when I got right into the abdominal region the word ‘shock’ came straight across there and this is the first time I’ve seen this.  This body has got to be guarded against any further shock, and that thing is very important.  Any kinds of movement should be kept at a minimum for this body.  It’s very important that quiet should be maintained for him.
At this level of consciousness he continues to talk to me in a very sleepy manner and at times drifts off.  It’s as if there may be some degree of comatose present.  He is aware of what is going on around him, but he feels some degree of frustration that he cant’ respond in his normal way.  This is what his consciousness is saying to me.  So regardless of what kind of state he is in I want everybody to know that he is fully aware of what is going on around him.  The organs of his body are out of synchronization with one another.  Each organ’s pitch, its tone has been altered due to the shock and this inharmonious sound has changed the vibrations causing each organ to therefore have a different kind of rhythms. They’re out of step. They are out of rhythm with each other.  The intestinal tract, the liver, the adrenals and the kidneys are all working at a different beat.
I asked for a solution and the solution that I have been seeing has been completely unorthodox.  I was shown a cone being applied by a metal instrument shaped like a six inch microphone with a metal round tip and being placed over energy points in the following areas:  in the scrotum, inside the knee, inside the ankle bone and one area on the hip bone opposite the navel and also a little to the right of the hip bone.  And at that hipbone area there were two areas: on the hip bone at the hipbone and a little to the right of the hipbone closer to the navel.  Now if we had that kind of instrument I’m sure that would restore the body at this particular point.  I get a feeling that there are key energy points that Dr. Walmer knows about.  This should be done to him on athe right side first and then the left sided and this will reestablish the body rhythm.  Some kind of tone, an electronic tone can be applied in ascending pitch as it is applied to the upper parts of the body so that as you would work up with this instrument which would have it’s pitch of the body and the pitch would then increase in degrees so that it would become higher as you move further up the body.  When I asked about acupuncture, I was told that it could be utilized if some form of vibratory tone could be set up in the body with the needles carrying the vibrations and the rods would have to be struck or tapped or vibrated.  The rhythm would be established and this could bring about a good rhythm in this body and bring this body out of shock and that the head however should not be moved or vibrated in any way.  Acupuncture, I feel should not be done until after he is out of the hospital but if we had that particular tone type instrument it could be applied while he was in the hospital that would bring him out.  Now the patient gives a very strong indication of wanting to be alive and to function wholly.  He will have to go through steps to achieve this.
I went back and I looked at it again and again and everything that was shown to me that he has to go through steps.  Over his head I saw a cloud, a mist that was deep pink white with a blue around it with deep pink in the center had white around that and then blue around it. Now it represents the state of his consciousness and that he isn’t functioning totally in his physical body.  Whenever that shows up it means that half of it is out or that the majority of it is outside of his physical body.  I also was aware of two beings present with him and they are stating to me that he should remain on the Earth plane for there are two specific things he must do in service to mankind.  One of these things will be executed by him twelve years form this period in time and the other that he will do will be 31 to 32 years of this period of Earth time.
These important times will have to be fulfilled because they will affect other people greatly and so he has to do these things.  The trauma that the physical body has sustained will be negated in a six-month period totally.  The consciousness will undergo a change in a three-month period.  The change of this consciousness will be evident to all who know him personally.  The importance of his life is being unfolded to him at this very moment and they’re also giving him the reasons for his being born.  Determination is going to be reinforced n his mind and be evident in his life as her proceeds to put his life back together.
Recommendations to follow:   I recommend that the conventional treatment for head injuries be given and followed explicitly.  No vigorous shock or movements to the body be given at this time. Acupuncture can be given after the patient is released from the hospital but not during his hospitalization.  I’m talking about conventional acupuncture not the technique I was mentioning before.  Spring of this year will be his strong recuperative period and this will also be a period when he will do a complete reevaluation of persons who are close to him, his relationship and how he sees them.  Recuperation I feel will not be instantaneous.  This is something he has to go through according to what the beings have said and I do not see beings showing up in my normal scans, I really don’t.  Healing can be administered to alleviate the discomfort that he is sensing but there must be some relearning of skills that he has taken for granted. I feel very strongly that absent healing will do a lot of corrective work on the shocked traumatized organs.  The aura field will receive a healing energy and will also bring the organs into synchronization when healing is sent in an absent way.  I’m coming to concentrate very strongly on the areas on his body in order to alleviate the distress that is now present.  I recommend that all persons concentrating on him use a soft blue misty cloud to cover his body now. This is only the color for him. Allow the color to change to the deep violet blue color like the indigo blue.  This what his body is calling for now.  Start with a medium light blue and then move to indigo. When you think of him and when anybody thinks of him think of this color surrounding him.  This will have a tremendous effect on his body.  Although it’s unseen it will have an effect.  He is quite receptive to my touching him and my presence.  He is quite receptive to the presence of his loved ones who are there, he is well aware of that.   It is important that his family and the people who care for him communicate with him verbally, that they talk to him when they are in his presence.  He is very much aware.  The color sets up a compatible tone that I mentioned.  This is a compatible tone with his body and it brings a balance into his body.  I further recommend that Dr. Walmer concentrate mental energy along the meridians of the body with which he is familiar.  And in the process of concentrating energy along these meridians he may in his mind insert the needles and stroke them in his mind.  Now this is beneficial that he stroke the needles in his mind only.  This mind process will work down to the physical, but nothing should be done to the physical body at this time for stimulation and that is very important.  You shouldn’t actually stimulate but it should be done on a mental basis.  The proper equipment that would bring about the tones of the body into full working order like I mentioned just are not available in this time period.  I see them and I understand their workings and everything, but they have just not come into the physical level yet.  They have not been made available, constructed yet.  There should be no stimulation to the head even mentally, so Dr. Walmer should not even mentally stimulate anything along the meridians of the head and everything must be done gently, everything softly gently.  This young man is being guarded and watched from another level of consciousness. And I feel that he still has a lot of life ahead of him and something important to do in his life.  So his family should kind of relax, but get busy mentally with those sorts of things. If you have any questions or feedback pleas feel free to call me back.

Gold Mind Meditation Project
(Transformation: Benefits for fellow head-injury survivors)        

Brain-injury is an invisible disability, not easily noticed from the outside like a wheelchair or crutches. It's a complex injury to the our brain and associated neurosensory systems. Each survivor experiences a unique array of symptoms, known profoundly from inside. Moving forward in times of great difficulty calls for drawing on one’s buried resources. Gold Mind Meditation Project empowers you to access resources in the mind and actually thrive in life through learning the Power of Mindfulness.

I speak from personal experience.  Returning to college years ago, I was involved in a serious car accident. Jaws-Of-Life were required to free me from the vehicle. I got a skull fracture and was in coma for seven days.  My brain swelled in my skull causing much secondary damage after the crash impact. When I came to I had severe traumatic brain injury (TBI), diplopia (double-vision) and amnesia. In an instant I was not who I used to be.

Since that time I've lived with continuing challenges of TBI. I struggled to complete my university degree and to get on with my life. I graduated from the university and then within a few years experienced frustrating failure in the loss of several jobs due to cognitive deficits:
weak learning and memory, poor boundaries and speech pathology. Often my perceptions were very cloudy - unaware of what I could do or be. My friend who is an Occupational Therapist pointed out that this condition was the direct result of TBI, what TBI is, and that I can actually have a powerful say in the process and success of my TBI rehabilitation.

TBI has often been misdiagnosed and thus poorly treated. In expensive and top-of-the-line rehabilitation programs I learned of my 'cognitive-deficits' and 'compensatory coping-strategies' for those deficits. These strategies are well-intended rehab but fell short of knowing and actually addressing the best possible well-being for me.  I had to learn this inner transformation for myself.

In my own explorations I have learned to sift gold (possibilities) from the gravel of my life experiences in order to find meaning, value and purpose for myself. Mindfulness Meditation is the key, learning to be brightly alive and awake in the present moment. I’ve learned the meditation practice called Insight Meditation.  Regular practice helps me be concentrated and focused, capable of sustained attention to chosen activities and to hold said purpose in mind. With Mindfulness practice we take a stand for our inner wellness, solidly at peace beyond the damages of our trauma and change. This is a path of being at peace with and authentic in your life, now. You can be ready to pick up whatever is next in your life path, with greater ease and joy, skillfully. You will get back benefits in proportion to the time that you put into the practice of mindfulness mediation, empowered to strongly face challenges.

Mindfulness practice can lead to brain healing ('neuroplasticity'- the brain can heal itself).  I am now choosing to live my life intentionally and more skillfully - making peace with this malady and finding the healing I need with present moment awareness. You can do this too. This is the start of a new path for you! Being calm and clear - activating your mind’s inherent strengths. Loving the life you live now.  Really!
